The Monsieur Bovet watch is a very special timepiece. It is a sophisticated watch that stimulates nostalgia and leaves one thinking about the elegance of the past. The watch has very classic lines that were clearly borrowed from the pocket watches gone by, and the watch offers a versatility that is second to none in the world of small timepieces. The piece has the patented Amadeo convertible watch case. This creates not one watch, and not two watches, but four watches in one.
The watch case is a genius feet of engineering. It is a system which enables the owner to transform the watch from a two sided, double wrist watch, into a pocket watch, and then into a small table clock if so desired. It takes very little effort to make these transformations, and even more impressive is that these changes can be made without the use of any tools whatsoever. The two wrist watch versions run off of a single watch movement that drives both watch dials. It is truly brilliant.
This watch has a case that is 43 millimeters in diameter, and is done in white gold. The crown is distinctive, and the watch has a special attachment at the 12 o’clock. The watch is powered by the manual wound calibre 13BM09AI movement which was both developed and produced in house. The movement vibrates 21,600 times per hour, and has a full 7 days of power reserve. The watch comes with a nice alligator skin strap and has a pin buckle. The watch feels bigger that 43 millimeters, but still sits nice on a wrist.
The watch chain is rhodium silver done in a way that perfectly matches white gold, and the watch is also available in red gold if desired, having a blue dial. The Monsieur Bovet is priced at $53,000, and for what it is worth, the watch, in its complexity, comes with a 5 year warranty. To read more about this ultra complex timepiece, go to bovet.com.
